Grube is a wideawake business man who bas great faith in The Union as an advertising medium. He is a constant patron of its columns, and if they didn’t bring him good returns he’s too shrewd a man to spend his cash in that way. —► Some of the motorists that ran on West ! Joppa road, Towson, last Sunday afternoon ! were going at a rate of speed that would easily | equal 35 miles an hour. And yet the speed ' limit in towns is 12 miles an hour. Might as well have no law. —► Articles of incorporation of the Wilhelm Park Improvement Company were filed on Wednesday in the County Clerk’s office. The ; i incorporators are Messrs. Charles H.

Fendall, of Towson, has a garden that contains about three eights of an acre of ground and his success as an "intensive farmer” is noteworthy.

The young people of the First Presbyte rian Church, Arlington, have organized a Chris tian Endeavor Society, with the following offi cers : President, John Kratz ; vice-president, C.

Miss Hattie Goetting. —*Now the curious are wondering who will get places in the Court House and other jobs when the new county officials take charge. There are a very large number of outside places to dispose of and no doubt the list of applicants for these will be a long one. As usual there are certain to be many disappointments. —On Friday night of last week Col. Wm. S. Powell, of the Ellicott City Timet, delivered a highly entertaining lecture before the pupils and alumni of the State Normal School on his trip around the world. Col.

Streett wilT be the first of the new county officers to enter upon his duties. This he will do before the opening of the December term of court, on the 2d of that month.

Stokes, who was rector of the parish forty three years, was unveiled in the Protestant Episcopal Church of the Redeemer, Charles street avenue, last Sunday morning. The ser mon was preached by Rev. Dr. J. Houston Eccleston, of Baltimore. Rev. M. H. Mill is the present pastor of the church. —•The contractors now say that the phviug of the York road to the new city boundary will be completed by the Ist of January next. The paving on the east side of the road to that point bas been finished. We doubt if there ever before was a public work that has hung fire like this has. That section of the road has been practically closed to travel for many months. —* Arrangements are nearly complete for the Howard County Poultry and Corn Show to be held at Ellicott City, November 28th, 29th and 30tb, day and night. A dog show and a children’s menagerie will be features of an ex hibition, which promises to be in all respects successful. Tbe affair is held nnder the auspices of the Business Men’s Associatiou of Ellicott City, of which Col. Wm. 8. Powell is president. —> A large bunch of sheep, intended for the Notch Cliff Stock Farm of Mr. William Hopps, in lower Long Green Valley, passed through Towson a few days ago. The coming Legisla ture should pass a stringent law to helpon this important industry, which is always profitable to farmers if they can protect their flocks from tbe ravages of dogs. Put a heavy tax on the canines and let the money thus raised go to the farmer to reimburse him for any losses he may sustain by having his sheep killed by dogs. The B. & O. Railroad Connects With the Md. & Pa.—Tbe Baltimore and Ohio Railroad Company has completed arrangements for building a connection with the Maryland and Pennsylvania Railroad above North avenue. The Maryland and Pennsylvania has a right to use the Belt Line tunnel of the Baltimore and Ohio and more than a year ago it arranged to build a connection with the latter road. Sev eral months ago the Maryland and Pennsyl vania started to build an incline from its tracks up to those of the Baltimore and Ohio, a short distance north of North avenue. At this point tbe Baltimore and Ohio tracks are considerably above those of the Maryland and Pennsylvania and the incline is rather long. While the Maryland and Pennsylvania has practically completed its portion of tbe work, the Baltimore and Ohio had not arranged for the connection until a few days ago. When tbe tracks which will join the two roads has been put down the Maryland and Pennsylvania will be able to transfer freight originating on its line for points on the Baltimore add Ohio direct, without having first to send it over the Pennsylvania Railroad, as at present, and vice versa. It is quite possible that the Maryland and Pennsylvania will some time in the future consider runfiing its passenger trains through to Camden Station. The company’s terminal iB now at North avenue and Oak street, but under its charter it has a perfect right to use the tunnel down to Camden. At present, how ever, it is said the company has no intention of availing itself of tbe franchise further than to facilitate tbe movement of freight intended for points on the Baltimore and Ohio. Successful Field Trials.—The Maryland, Virginia and District of Columbia Field Trials Association held a meet at Laurel this week. Among the successful contestants were dogs belonging to Messrs. Joseph F. Hindes, Gra son Gent and George P. Weir, all of Baltimore county. Before the close of the meeting Mr. Gent was elected president of the association and Mr. Weir a member of the board of gov ernors. A correspondent says: "As is usual on a first day there were some delays at the start, but these were relieved for the diversion of the spectators by Mr. Grason Gent, who bad shipped his trick saddle horse here for bis use in following tbe trials. Mr. Gent put the horse through all sorts of stunts. Later in the day Mr. Gent attempted to make his horse leap a stiff post and-rail fence. Tbe trick horse took it and planted bis feet firmly on landing. Mr. Gent continued his flight and landed on his head several feet in front of the horse Mr. Gent was not hurt, but greatly chagrined, since he had earlier posed as a cow boy rider to such appreciative spectators.” Baltimore County Ballot a Curiosity.— In a recent issue of the Daily Enterprise, pub lished at Cheburne, Texas, we find tbe follow ing: “Marshall H. Wilson, who is a represents i tive of the Census Department at Washington, i and is here getting some data as to divorces, bas presented District Clerk Hoffman with a copy of tbe official ballot of Baltimore county, Maryland. It is a very large document and ; could not be easily stuck in your vest pocket. Mr. Wilson’s statement of the law regulating - j the casting of this ballot would interest the I Texas politician. The Terrell election law i isn’t a circumstance. Mr. Hoffman has the i ballot pasted up for exhibition aud all are in vited to take a look at it.” i Mr. Wilson’s home is in Towson and his i brother, whois employed in The Union office, I sent him the copy of the ballot above alluded to. it Marble HUI, Bth District.—Our Democratic a friends have much over which to rejoice in y the way of pluralities or majorities, but surely d they feel condemned over the fact of their con s nection with a party that bas disfranchised so many of our citizens as the multitude of re a jected ballots show. Besides a large number a of persons did not vote owing to tbe large and b confusing ballot. At Cockeysville precinct i, 171 persons failed to vote of the 660 registered, . and 55 ballots were rejected. We do hope it will be our privilege to again use a simple bal ] lot and every man say with one mark if he ; choose for a party’s nominees, l We are opposed to an educational test be - cause many persons who cannot read pay s taxes and have opinions, hence why cannot they gain knowledge from what persons tell , them as those who are informed by reading r what bas been published. There are many f uneducated but industrious business men that i can impart common sense to tbe boastful pro r feasor or student. Our duty is to make the world better and not degrade any class, but t teach that the law must be obeyed, that life be protected and made happy ; hence disfranchise I none but encourage them to respect their , birthright. i There is general complaint over the corn not having matured or hardened. There is i much large corn and big yields are expected and yet a great deal is soft from late planting. Mr. E. E. Scott grew very large ears of corn and may get 18 barrels per acre. Mr. W. H. i Wight bas extra size corn and will get from one field from 15 to 20 barrels. He has two fields planted with different seed showing the advantage in selecting the best producing corn. Our fire department seems to be resting, I am glad to report, as fires are not appreciated. We do wish the County Commissioners would give them all they ask in the way of equip ment as the men are deserving from many points of view. Men seek political favors and are gratified at large salaries, but it is too often tbe case that those who are willing to protect life and property and risk life to save, are dis couraged by lack of material to do a brave deed. Tbe members are well known and organized for noble purposes and care for what equip ment they have and are ready to use it at a moment’s call. Mr. George Jessop, and those with him at the Richardson fire, sacrificed time and business interests, but not for glory. A wedding or two is anticipated as Cupid bas been very industrious lately. Pleasant Hill, 6tb District. —The present mouth, thus far, bas been a very wet one, the ground being thoroughly saturated and there oueht to be no scarcity of water this winter. Grain bas made very poor progress this fall and tbe prospect for a good crop next year is not very flattering. But we are commanded in the morning to sow the seed and in the eve ning not to withhold the hand for we know not which shall prosper, or whether they both shall be alike good. Our farmers are in the height of corn-husk ing. Some are waiting for the corn to dry, thinking it not fit to be housed, but the fre quent rains are preventing it from shaping up. The crop seems to be a fairly good one. Mr. J. Nelson Dailey sold his personal ef fects last Saturday and will remove his family to Mt. Washington, where they will reside in tbe future. They will be much missed in the community. The Royston property, which was tenented by Mr. Charles Parrish, has been purchased by Mr. James H. Keeney and he will take possession next spring. The price paid was 82.700. It is reported that Mr. Thomas J. Freeland has sold bis house and lot in this village to Mr. Heise. Tbe funeral of Mr. Joseph Cooper, of Wood berry, took place last Sunday at 2 p. m , at Middletown Cemetery. Mr. Cooper formerly lived in this neighborhood but removed there from nearly thirty years ago. He was a mem ber of the Shield of Honor and was buried in tbe rites of that order, Rev. Charles E. Fultz delivering the funeral oration. He was 68 years of age and leaves a wife and a number of children. The Baptist Church at this place is under going a thorough renovating and the congre gation has purchased a fine bell, which will be swung in tbe tower when it is completed. There is nothing that speaks so forcibly for a community as good church buildings and we are frank to say, in this respect our people are up to date, as the M. E. Church in the vil lage is a credit to the congregation. Judge Hoßhall seems a very happy man since the election. His district paid him a handsome compliment on election day, for which he is grateful to bis many friends. B. Randallstown, 2d District.—Tbe protrac ted meeting that commenced at Mt. Olive M. E. Church, November 7th, is still in progress and is well attended. Revs. Wm. E. Curley and J. Edward Snyder are pastors. Dr. H. J. Hebb is again on tbe sick list, but is better at this time. The Christian Endeavor social which was to have been held at thehomeof Mrs. Peter Wolf, of Woodlawn, was postponed on account of inclement weather. Last Sunday night as Mr. Isaac Holbrook, Jr., was returning home from Mt. Olive Church, he bad a very unpleasant experience. His horse became unmanagable and ran into a buggy driven by a Mr. Coe, who was going in the opposite direction. Both buggies were de molished, but fortunately no one was badly hurt, although Mr. Holbrook was thrown un der bis buggy. Mr. William Sudman was elected president of Randallstown Christian Endeavor Society last Sunday night. Many farmers of this vicinity are very busy husking corn and hauling hay and potatoes to market. Tbe six week days are not long enough for some to get their work done and they violate tbe Sabbath by hauling in some of their crops on that day. The congregation of Randallstown Presby terian Church is expecting a new minister next Sunday night, and they hope to retain him permanently. D. Kingsville, 11th District.—Miss Katie Doran, of Catonsville, was a guest the past week of Miss Rose Gilbert. Mr. Lehman L. Dil worth has been quite sick at his home here.' He is improving under the care of Dr. J. F. H. Gorsuch. Miss Mary A. Bell and Master Edward Bell, who bad been visiting relatives in Baltimore, have returned to their home. Mrs. Van Brant Rittenhouse has returned from a visit to Prof, and Mrs. Guy E. Suavely, of Meadville, Pa. Miss George A. Hutton, of Baltimore, was a guest of her sister, Mrs. L. L. Dilworth,' last Saturday and Sunday. The Ladies’ Aid Society of St. Paul’s Luth eran Church, of Kingsville, will hold an oyster supper in tbe Casino, at Upper Falls, on Sat urday, November 16th. All cordially invited. Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Cardwell have re moved to Baltimore for the winter. Mr. Lawrence Cardwell, of Baltimore, is a guest of his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Frank Card well, of this district. Mr. L. G. Quinlin entertained a few of his gentlemen friends on Sunday last at his an nual pig roast. Mrs. Annie Perdue and Miss Nellie Perdue, who bad been visiting Mrs. Frank M. Gor such, have returned to their home on My Lady’s Manor. An effort was made to do away with the postoffices in this neighborhood and establish a rural free delivery route, but through the efforts of some of our business men, who wanted their mail twice a day and on holidays and did not wish to wait for their letters until 3 o’clock in the afternoon, the movement was defeated. E. Jacksonville and Sunnybrook, 10th Dis trict.—Tbe members of Bethany Lodge, I. O. O. F.. of Glenarm, on Sunday morning last at tended divine service at Chestnut Grove Church, when the pastor, Rev. W. L. Schmal horst, preached a special sermon. On account of the very unfavorable weather the attend ance was smaller than was expected. Revival services are now in progress at Fair view M. E. Church South, Sunnybrook, con ducted by the pastor, Rev. H. L. Febrey, who has preached some excellent sermons. It is hoped much good may result from bis earnest efforts. Mibs Eva Nau lead the Christian Endeavor meeting at Chestnut Grove Church last Sun day evening. Those present were much pleased with the service. Hogs that have been fattening are rapidly maturing for the butcher and many farmers will slaughter fine ones that will largely make provision for the winter. Pork is high at this time and those who have any to sell are doing well with it. This year, taken altogether, has been an exceptionally good one for farmers. The fine weather lately has been much ap preciated by farmers and they are pushing the work of saving their corn crop as rapidly as possible. Some say the indications point to a mild winter and it is hoped their predictions may come true. M. Dulany’a Valley, XOtb District. —The fu neral of Mrs. Mullen, who died at her home in this valley, took place at Waugh M. E. Church last Sunday, the pastor, Rev. M. L. Beall, con ducting the services. The pall-bearers were Messrs. Adam Horn, Paul Bode, William Al bright, John Pocock, Harry Pocock and Mr. Pierce. Deceased is survived by her husband, four sons and one daughter. Patrons of tbe Dulany’s Valley public school, and also the pupils, regret very much to lose Miss Bertha Haile, the teacher, who bas filled that position so long and so successfully. She will be married next week to Mr. E. Rogers Lee. Miss Kate Numbers, of Perry Hall, is now in charge of tbe school. Mr. and Mrs. Winfield Armstrong and daughter, of Aberdeen, have gone to Califor nia to spend the winter with Mrs. Armstrong ’ • sister, Mrs. P. L. Mason. P. Run Down by an Automobile. —Mrs. Seipp, wife of Prof. Warren S. Seipp, an in , structor at the Polytechnic Institute in Balti more, was knocked down by an automobile i while she was waiting for a car at the north west corner of North and Greenmountavenues on Friday night of last week. Mrs. Seipp was rendered unconscious and was carried into ; Fox’s drug store, close by. She was later re ) moved to her home, 1914 Garrett avenue, in an automobile. The physician who attended her s said that Mrs. Seipp was suffering from severe - | bruises of the head and body. The identity | of the owner of the automobile that knocked i ! her down could not be ascertained. Mrs. Seipp , ' is a daughter of Mr. Lewis W. Held, a well . ' known Towson business man. J Monkton, N. O. R. R.— Mrs. Matilda A. i Bayne, sister of Mrs. George E. Shelley and a r former resident of Baltimore county, died at herhomein Baltimore, on Saturday last. Mrs. Shelley had been in the city several weeks during her sister’s illness. Mr. Wm. D. Curry is putting up a rough l shelter for his stock and in the spring he will : doubtless rebuild his barn, which will practi cally mean doing over the work of twenty years’ wise endeavor and planning, but such is the impotency of men in the face of devasta i tion by any of the uncontrolable elements, like fire or wind, that it cannot be helped. And yet men think in their puny strength that they are a wonderful power. When Sbakes , peare compared the world Jo a stage and the men and women who inhabit it to be actors and actresses in the world’s drama, be struck the keynote of human endeavor. Some of ns play our parts well; others indifferently. The truly great players will occupy a nich In history’s calendar,' while the little spoken or actors and actresses will slide off the stage of life and be forgotten in a few years. Such is life. The third quarterly meeting of Monkton Circuit convened at Clynmalira Church last Saturday. Rev. Edward Hayes, a former pastor, occupied the pulpit at 11 a. m. on Sat urday and preached an interesting sermon. He said he attended his first quarterly meet ing, as a minister, at Clynmalira nineteen years ago and tested what delicious luncheons are provided on those occasions by the good Methodist sisters. Needless to say Clynmalira kept up its reputation of yore by providing a bountiful lunch for all present and the hostesses received a rising vote of thanks from the con ference in appreciation of their efforts. Rev. Dr. McDowell, who has been abroad, was expected to touch American soil again on Saturday and preach on Sunday, but the in clement weather of that morning prevented. Revival services are in progress this week, in charge of Revs. Solomon German and Wm. H. Fox. Mrs. Edwin L. Pearce, of the Manor, who had been quite ill the past two weeks, is now improving. Mr. William Hutchins, who has been in failing health for some time, continues very weak. The oyster supper on Thursday and Friday evenings of this week attracted a large crowd and the committee in charge wore smiling faces of welcome to all comers.

Winans Fire Company, met with a serious accident a few days ago while gunning with several friends at Cherry Hill, near Westport. His dog chased a rabbit and Capt. Durm fired one barrel, killing the rabbit. He started in the direction of his game when the gun exploded in his hand, shattering it terri bly. The thumb and a large portion of the first two fingers were blown completely off, and he was bleeding profusely when his friends hurried for surgical assistance. Dr. Glann, of Mount Winans, was notified and dressed Mr. Durm’s wounds, after which he was removed to the Franklin Square Hospital.

No perforation of the intestines or internal hemor rhages were found, and it is thought that he has a fair chance for recovery. Chestnuts and Potatoes as Food. — Chestnuts are a food very similar to potatoes in value, although on the side of nutrition the advantage is with the nut. The latter has but 53 per cent, water, while water in the potato is found to the extent of 75 per cent. We are just beginning to learn generally in this coun try that the chestnut may be cooked exactly as the potato is cooked, and that it is palata ble either boiled, baked or roasted. All very good and true. But if the chestnut formed any part of the staple food of Baltimore county we would all go hungry, as the crop is small, the nut is small, with the worm the biggest part thereof and very much in evidence. But all the same the cultivation of the chestnut should go on, especially in lands that will raise nothing else. Must Pay Alimony.—The Baltimore Sun of Tuesdav said: “An order wps signed yes terday by Judge Gorier, in Circuit Court No. 2, allowing Mrs. Mary Margaret Moyer 827.50 a week alimony in her suit for seperate mainte ance against her husband, Dr. Frank G.

The place is 1 improved by a frame dwelling, barn and the necessary outbuildings. The Relationship of Landlord and Ten ant. —.This was the principal subject dis cussed at the last meetiDg of the Junior Gun powder Agricultural Club. We append the views of some of those present: Mj. Joshua G. Bosley said: “The system in England is to make the most out of every acre of land and rents there are high, with long term leases. The trouble here is the renter wants too much land, which is a detriment to Bin* and the landlord, the result being more work and lighter crops per acre. It will pay oveiy renter to do good farming. He should receive compensation for bis labor, but should be Under obligation to do good work. He sbosld consider the interest of the landlord, who ig expected to return consideration. Tbe one who pays the taxes is supposed to keep up tbe improvements. Tbe share rent is tbe most equitable plan. Whatever is the system of rent there should be a specific agreement and a com pliance to make results satisfactory. Three dollars per acre as a money rent would be rea sonable, and yet large farms have rented for much less. Six hundred acres in one place has been rented for SBOO. In some places the one third of crops goes to the renter, but here usu ally the hair is given.” Mr. Harry A Matthews said : "As to money rent there is much property that will not bring $3 PW acre by that system. The share system ia better.” Mr. Laban Sparks said: “The relation of landlord and tenant is very near, but ofttimes not very dear. The better plan is tbe share system. It depends on the fertility of tbe land to decide what to do. We cannot place a mar ket value on land so as to base a money rent per icre. The tax assessment is reckoned as the value of land, and yet much is assessed at double the price it would bring. The landlord and tenant should co-operate to the satisfaction of eicb, and the more intelligent should give directions. The landlord, if a farmer, should have some say as to the rotation of crops for the improvement of tbe farm.” Mr, E. E. Scott said: “I agree with Mr. Sparks that the relation between the landlord and the tenant is so close that one is dependent on the other. I have seen tbe share system of rent with poor farming ; besides there is too muck moving on tbe part of the tenant. He will aim to better himself, sometimes leaving a fattn with less fertility. The money rent is ratbsr better, as the renter will endeavor to mata better crops. Where the farmer carries oh dairying the money plan ia better. Much depends on what the renter wants to do. A man wanted a tenant and only had two in ferior applicants.” , Mr. b. S. Pearce said: “I think the half crop shire system is more satisfactory, as it is more nearly a partnership. The right man for a tenant will get the advantage, because his object wilt be to succeed and farm for tbe best crops, thus benefiting bis landlord, who be comes more ikterestea in the well being of tbe tenant. Too ivany tenants work to get all they possibly on, without regard to future improvement ofUiefarm.” Mr. Upton H. Tarbert said: “If I had a farm to rent I woeld want the tenant to be most industrious and careful. I think there should be mutual interests, then when im provements are made each will be benefited and appreciative.” Mr. T.P. W. France said : “The relationship between landlord and tenant should be as mu tual as possible; they will understand each other better in all that is to be done. The land lord should furnish supplies for crops and im provements to encourage the tenant. The earning power of some tenants is better than others, and some persons can make money out of farming and add improvements at tbe same time." Mr. C. D. Price said: "1 think favorably of the money rent plan and the average price per acre, $3 to $4. I would chance the money rent plan and the dairy business would help to meet it. In improvements like liming the landlord pays forthe limeand tenant hauls it." Mr. George B. Shelley said: "What is the landlord’s interest is the tenant’s. The former should not be too exacting. As to satisfaction being given much depends on the farm and its fertility to produce the best results. The ten ant who finds his own labor should get more than a third of the crops or receipts.” Mr. W. D. Curry said : "The share system of rent, with a capable tenant and favorable circumstances, would be an advantage to the landlord as well as a benefit to the tenant. I know of one or more tenants that were so suc cessful that they soon got to be landowners ” Mr. T. Melville Pearce said: "I think the share system of rent is the better way and a majority seem to do it. It is not so easy to pay a rent. Reference to was a tenant who receives one-third of tbe receipts of the farm and dairy for the labor of the property, tbe landlord finds stock, fertilizers, and seeds. The tenant finds all the labor.” Mr. T. V. Richardson thought the one-third in this case was better than the half crop sys tem, when tbe tenants find stock, &c. Meeting of the School Board.—The School Board met at Towson on Wednesday, with the president, Mr. Thomas B. Todd, in the chair, and Mr. A. S. Cook, secretary. Miss M.

May Get Together on Water Question. —Mayor Mahool, of Baltimore city, has sent a letter to Water Engineer Quick instructing him to invite the members of the Water Board, the County Commissioners of Baltimore county and through tbe latter anyone representing the county’s interests in any locality, to meet at tbe Mayor’s reception room some day shortly so that the proposed water loan may be dis cussed. The idea of calling the meetingofrepresenta tives of the county is to obviate opposition to tbe water loan act when it is presented at tbe Legislature. Last session tbe county people practically defeated the measure because, they contended, the city was not acting equitably. It is for the purpose of adjusting tbeir claims as well as the city’s that the meeting has beeu called. Besides the Mayor and the two boards. Con gressman Talbott, City Solicitor Bruce and probably State Senator Biddison and several members of the Legislature, including ex- Speaker Carville D, Benson, will probably at tend.
